Forum: texts Subject: issues with links to iframes on iPad

I am wondering if others have experienced issues with linking to specific pages of archive.org texts when the link goes to an iframe and the user has an iPad.
Such links work fine for on PC desktop/laptop but do not go to correct page on my iPad(s). Could anybody test please to see if they experience the same?
Go to
https://earlychurchtexts.com/iframetest/
Click on "Field" in
Field Vol. 1, p. 27
Page 27 should appear in the Greek text.
But on my two ipads the link never goes to the right page.
It used to work fine - so I am not sure whether the iPad software has changed or the archive.org software.
Any responses welcome.
Many thanks.
Andrew

what page does it go to?
does it go to the correct spread if you use 2up rather than 1up?

there may be issues with older iPads and iOS.

It goes to bottom of page 40 and top of page 41.
iPads are iPad pro 10.5 and iPad Pro (12.9 - 3rd generation). Both running 15.6.1. Certainly not most recent models, but no problems I have noticed with anything else.

Will try with 2up later. I can't get it to refresh at the moment without just displaying 1up even though a new page uploaded with different name!

I have experimented further with different url address content.

https://archive.org/details/chrysostom_matthew_homilies_field_vol_1/page/110/mode/1up
This works for going to page 110 - but only with all details etc. of volume showing at the bottom of the frame.

Same with 2up

but when the broken edged square is clicked at the bottom right of the frame or with
?view=theater at end of url string
it goes to wrong page


https://archive.org/stream/chrysostom_matthew_homilies_field_vol_1#page/110/mode/2up
goes to wrong page and "2up" does not seem to have any effect. Only one page shows.


https://archive.org/stream/chrysostom_matthew_homilies_field_vol_1#page/110/mode/1up
goes to wrong page'


Interestingly though - if I cick on the cross (next to headphone symbol) at the bottom right of the iframe it goes to two pages view and then if I click on the broken edge square at the bottom right next to the headphone symbol it goes to the correct page 110!

See

I wonder if there is anything that can be done to resolve this issue on slightly older iPads.
